I Wayan Bawa Antara is a painter born in Banjar Tebesaya, Ubud in 1974. He studied at Sekolah Tinggi Seni Indonesia in Denpasar, Bali from 1993 – 1999.
Although influenced by modern atmosphere, he has a strong value of Balinese tradition. This makes his works more than just a show of the exotica of Bali. In many of his paintings, Bawa Antara always features his ornamental style. Clearly seen in his ‘dancer’ paintings, he puts attention to delicate ornaments, such as the dancers’ costumes (coronal and masks).
Often holding both solo and group exhibitions in Bali and Jakarta, in 2010, Bawa Antara also hold his solo exhibition entitled “Innocence” in The Art House, Singapore.
